    Judy and her team made my wedding a dream and total success. From the very beginning we fell in love with the property and its secluded feeling. The beach is gorgeous and felt so private. Judy was there every step of the planning answering any questions we had and on the wedding weekend went through our decor and even ran our rehearsal on the beach! On the big day she made sure everything was just as I wanted and was an extra superstar when our caterer refused to cut the cake for our guest- Judy jumped in. The whole venue is just so beautiful, peaceful and private. My photographer said it was one of his favorites to shoot as well! Highly recommended and cannot wait to go back just to stay there for my one year anniversary!

    I worked with Judy Baker and she was amazing! She made great recommendations when we were choosing our venue, rehearsal dinner, hair stylists, caterers, photographers, DJ, and bakeries! She was amazing at helping make my dream come true with the way the ceremony and reception turned out. There was a mishap with the wrong plates I received but Judy took care of it no problem! If I did it all over again, I would go with Judy every time!!! She was amazing!! And really knows what she is doing! She was also very responsive. I felt like she was there every step of the way!! Definitely recommend Judy and Pajaro Dunes!

    We did not end up using this venue. It is a very pretty area and of course the beach is beautiful, this venue on the other hand is very outdated and over priced. Badly needs to be updated.

    This is a fantastic place to shoot a wedding. The venue worked out well and the bride and groom loved the location.

    This venue is the best kept secret on the coast! Get married on a beautiful, private stretch of the beach; stay in fully appointed condos or houses, and bring your guests to a reception just steps away from the beach in their banquet facilities. So many brides ask me where they can have a beach ceremony - and this is the best of the best.
